        Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

        I never do my own nails bc I can't make them look professionally done and I don't go to the salon bc I can't justify spending that much money on a manicure. I bought the base, color, and top coat from this brand and I am shocked. The quality is amazing and it does look like a professional gel manicure. I will be stocking up on all the colors and will even be trying the plumper. Try it! Can't beat the price either!!! Bought them on buy two get one free.

          Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

          This base coat along with the top coat is the real deal!!! It really makes my manicures last. I've used many base/top coats and nothing compares to this specific brand. Other brands that I have used in the past (Some Expensive), only last about 3 days maybe even 4 if I was lucky, then they started to chip. Since using this product, my manicures now last a full week without chipping. I think the key is using good colored polish like OPI or Essie with it. I would highly recommend anyone who is into doing there own names to go out and get this product. It's not only budget friendly, but a GREAT nail product to have.

            This base coat along with the top coat is seriously legit. It is by far the best inexpensive product I've used. I've used many products and this one tops them all. My manicures last a full week. Usually with other products they would only last about 3 maybe 4 days if I was lucky. I highly recommend this product ladies.

                Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

                Essence the gel polishes are GREAT!! I get the salon look for a lot less money. I use the base coat, colors and the top coat from this line and have been very pleased. The polish lasts from 5 to 7 days. They don't have a ton of colors but the selection is still decent. Do yourself a favor and invest. The polishes range from $0.99 to $3.99 and there are always sales and deals.
